INADEQUATE OPERATING SPEED AND/OR ACCELERATION
All elevators in a bank shall operate within the same performance range and meet the performance criteria of the building design
One-Year - Work and Materials
Equipment not meeting the Acceptable Performance/Condition shall be repaired.
Typically, elevator consultants and elevator contractors’ engineers assist the architects and building owners with the selection of the number of elevators and escalators. The selection is based on the speed, performance criteria and times. Hence, the performance of the physical devices has to meet the standard performance criteria of the design in order to provide acceptable service. Alternatively, it may be possible for the elevator contractor to demonstrate that the actual performance of the elevators can meet the traffic handling capacity of the building.
